The Rise of the “Decepticons!”

The term “Decepticon” may be a foreign one to many of my readers, and a very familiar term to others.

The “Decepticons” are a part of the “Transformers” family. That may help more of my readers.  

The name “Decepticon” refers to deception, or attempting to deceive.

That’s where I’m trying to go with this.

Let’s call out some of our political “decepticons”…, those pretending to be Independents, those pretending to be Republicans, and those pretending to be Americans!

Regarding The Senate…, they say the democrats “control The Senate,” which means they control the agenda, and what gets voted on and what doesn’t. This is because the Senate is split 50-50, with Vice President Harris breaking the tie, making it 51-50. 

But wait…, is it really? How can that be?  There are only 48 democrat senators in The Senate.

It’s true.

If you look at the make-up of The Senate, there are 50 republicans, 48 democrats, and 2 “independents.”

The two senators who identify as being an “independent” are Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Senator Angus King of Maine, however, they also say these senators choose to caucus with the democrats, thus adding to their numbers.

I say they shouldn’t be able to have it both ways.  Either identify as a democrat or not.

This brings to the forefront the most egregious “decepticon” of all, Senator Bernie Sanders. Honestly, I had never even heard of Senator Angus King before.

Does anyone actually believe that Bernie Sanders is an Independent?

I mean he has run for president as a democrat (TWICE), and his socialist ideologies would even place him on the far left edge of the democrat party these days, which is really saying something! Russia and China would probably even have to reign him in a bit!

Our next group of “decepticons” would be those “republicans” who should really identify as democrats, and those whose allegiance really lies with “the swamp.”

Heading up the “swamp” list of “decepticons” are Senators Mitch “Swamp Turtle” McConnell and Lindsey Graham.  

Those “republicans” who we see “transforming” into democrats from time to time are, Mitt Romney, Liz Cheney, Adam Kinzinger, Susan Collins, and Lisa Murkowski.

The list of the democrat “decepticons” masquerading as Americans, while disregarding the oath they all took to follow and protect The Constitution, is quite long, in fact.

Just for starters, this list would include “the big guy,” the “illegitimate guy,” Joe Biden, “Cackling” Kamala Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley, Maxine Waters, Jerrold Nadler, Adam Schiff, Pramiya Jayapal, Eric Swalwell, and Cori Bush. And again, that’s just for starters.

Yes, my friends, it’s getting to the point where the democrat “decepticons” don’t even bother to hide the fact that they’re anti-American anymore. This can be done when they aren’t even worried about the opinion of voters anymore, since the democrats can just manipulate the vote in their favor…, and get away with it.

Does your U.S. representative represent you?

In a democratic republic, which is the type of government the U.S. has, our elected state senators and district representatives are supposed to represent the citizens in their state and districts.

Rather than the entire country voting on every issue and law, we elect these representatives to do so on our behalf.

The only problem is, we have many elected officials in government who commonly disregard the people they represent, the people they work for, and vote for things because they feel they know better, they want to draw, what they deem to be, favorable political attention to themselves, or because of “pressure” from their respective political parties.  

I’ve selected four representatives to use as examples.

Donald Trump got 68.62% of the vote in West Virginia, yet, their senator, Joe Manchin votes with the democrats on every issue, including impeachment.  

Donald Trump got 58.13% of the vote in Utah, yet, their senator, Mitt Romney, voted to impeach President Trump, and sides with the democrats quite often.  

Donald Trump got 56.92% of the vote in Montana, yet, their senator, Jon Tester votes with the democrats on every issue, including impeachment. 

Donald Trump got 69.94% of the vote in Wyoming, yet, one of their representatives, Liz Cheney, voted to impeach President Trump, and was very outspoken on the issue.  

Again, these are just the four examples I’ve chosen to use here, but there are more.

Then we have senate “majority” leader, Chuck Schumer, who really doesn’t represent a majority at all, and Speaker Nancy Pelosi, whose democrat party holds the slimmest of majorities in the Congress, pushing radical, totalitarian, legislation, while supposedly representing most Americans, which they don’t.

And we can throw Illegitimate Joe Biden in there, as well, with his signing of radical executive orders, while purporting to desire unity among the American people.

He may want unity, but only on his terms, and only unity with people who will blindly follow his anti-American agenda.

Better said, the anti-American agenda that Illegitimate Joe has been told to follow.

Remember, Joe…, Kamala is waiting in the wings to become the Signer in Chief, should you falter or grow a conscience.  

It is now very apparent that Joe Biden and his administration was only a “trojan horse” for ultra-left-wing policies and ideology.

Hopefully America can survive until the 2022 elections, and then until the elections of 2024.

My reaction to some recent headlines about the Electoral College, AOC and the 22nd Amendment, DNC Chair calls Republican lawmakers “cowardly,” Joe Biden’s behavior with women, and did the NY Times and The Washington Post help elect President Trump!?

There are so many topics I’d like to offer my insight on, but so little time!

Welcome to my first crack at the “MrEricksonRules headline buffet line!”

Pick your favorite(s) or have some of each.  It’s totally up to you.

Senate democrats introduce measure to abolish Electoral College.

“Would election by popular vote be better than the Electoral College?”

“A group of Democratic senators on Tuesday introduced a measure to do away with the Electoral College, picking up on a talking point that has caught fire in the 2020 Democratic presidential field.”

“According to NBC News: ‘Leading Democratic senators are expected to introduce a constitutional amendment Tuesday to abolish the Electoral College, adding momentum to a long-shot idea that has been gaining steam among 2020 presidential candidates.’”

“…changing the Constitution is seen as virtually impossible today. A constitutional amendment may be proposed by a two-thirds supermajority in both the House (about 290 votes) and Senate (67 votes) and requires ratification by 38 states.”

As is usually the case with the democrat party, what we have here is either disingenuous political grandstanding, uninformed ignorance, or a combination of the two.  I’m going to give them some credit and say it’s disingenuous political grandstanding for the most part, since actually amending the Constitution would never happen, mostly due to the requirement of having 38 states go along with it.

So…, in the grand scheme of things, it’s kind of like “The Green New Deal,” a bunch of noise that ain’t never going to happen.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Liz Cheney disagree over knowledge of 22nd Amendment, Constitution.

“[Liz] Cheney, R-WY, took issue with a comment [Alexandria] Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, made during a recent MSNBC town hall event in which the freshman congresswoman talked about Democrats being in control of Congress in the 1930s and 1940s.”

‘“When our party was boldest, the time of the New Deal, the Great Society, the Civil Rights Act and so on, we had, and carried, supermajorities in the House, in the Senate. We carried the presidency,’ she told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes.”

‘“They had to amend the Constitution of the United States to make sure (President Franklin D.) Roosevelt did not get reelected,’ Ocasio-Cortez continued.”

“In response to Ocasio-Cortez’s remarks, Cheney tweeted: ‘We knew the Democrats let dead people vote. According to AOC, they can run for president too!’”

“The New Yorker then fired off her own response. ‘Hey Rep. Cheney, I see from your dead people comment that you get your news from Facebook memes, but the National Constitution Center + Newsweek are just two of many places where you can clarify your misunderstanding of the history of the 22nd Amendment,’ she wrote.”

“Roosevelt died while in office in 1945 and the 22nd Amendment was proposed by Congress in 1947.  The Amendment reads, “No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some of other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once.”

I think we can safely score this:

Representative Liz Cheney………..ONE

Representative Ocasio-Cortez…….ZERO

DNC Chair Tom Perez calls Republican lawmakers “cowardly,” says they will be “judged harshly” by history

“Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez launched a stunning attack on Republican lawmakers, saying history will “judge” them for supporting President Trump.”

What’s so “stunning” about that?  I hear much worse on a daily basis directed at President Trump, republicans and various conservatives.

‘“The reason why we [Democrats] are winning, and we won at scale in 2018, is because our message is clear. Our message was: we are the ones who actually have your back on the issues that really matter. Healthcare, education. He said he had your back, but actually he had a knife in your back,’ Perez said.”

The truth is the democrats under performed in the 2018 midterms, and by any measure we can say the democrats do not “have our back.”  The democrats, most recently led by Barack Obama, sold America and Americans out.  They gave away our jobs, our wealth, our respect around the world, and our American soul.

“The DNC chair continued that President Trump found success in 2016 by putting ‘fear on the ballot,’ and that Republican lawmakers who have supported his policies over the last three years are ‘cowards’ who have allowed damage to be done to their part.”

That’s a good one Tom!  The democrats are historically the party of fear.  How many times have we heard “the republicans will gut social security,” due to the republicans, millions will die without healthcare, our children will starve and grandma will be left out on the street!?

We didn’t need President Trump to “put fear on the ballot” in 2016, we were all scared already that our country was going down the drain. And rightly so.

‘“I mean, history will not only judge Donald Trump harshly. It will judge Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan and all the other cowards who refused to stand up to this president and allowed the party of Lincoln to die. They will be judged harshly because whatever he says goes right now.’”

I feel more correctly, “history” will judge these times as the times of the great liberal lies.  The times of liberal propaganda and the times of the corrupt and biased media who backed them up rather than do their jobs as watchdogs for We the People.

Pelosi: Biden didn’t know “the world we’re in now.”

“House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi is the most high-profile Democrat to come to the defense of former Vice President Joe Biden’s ‘affectionate demeanor,’ Peter Doocy reports from Washington.”

Ha! “Affectionate demeanor!?”  Is that what we’re calling “Uncle Joe’s” creepy behavior now?

And according to Politico (a news journalism company), “Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday that she does not think the allegations against Joe Biden of unwelcome contact are disqualifying for a 2020 run, but that the former vice president should be more aware of others’ personal space. ‘I don’t think it’s disqualifying,’ Pelosi said… ‘He has to understand in the world that we’re in now that people’s space is important to them, and what’s important is how they receive it and not necessarily how you intended it.’ … Pelosi pushed back against the tone of former vice president’s apologies. ‘It is how it’s received, so to say, ‘I’m sorry that you were offended’ is not an apology,’ the California Democrat said. ‘‘I’m sorry I invaded your space,’ but not, ‘I’m sorry you were offended.’ What’s that? That’s not accepting the fact that people think differently about communication.’”

I’m a little confused.  Is she coming to Joe’s defense or is she scolding him?

National Public Radio (NPR) noted, “On the most obvious level, complaints of this kind renew the criticism of Biden’s past performance on issues affecting women and people of color, the two constituencies likely to matter most in choosing the next Democratic nominee.”

As usual with the democrats, us poor white guys are treated like second class citizens.

“Perceptions of Biden as ‘old school’ or ‘old fashioned’ are not just liabilities to be shed. They are also the basis of his appeal to many older, white, working-class Democrats and independents.”

The democrat party can say what they want about the new breed of democrat-socialists out there; Joe Biden leads in the polls for president, and he hasn’t even officially declared yet!

“Biden’s advisers believe coverage of allegations of inappropriate behavior is being stoked by rival Democrats…”

No kidding.

That basically leaves one guy…, and I can hear ‘em now, Bernie, Bernie, Bernie.

New York Post: How the New York Times, Washington Post helped get Trump elected.

“If either paper had done the sort of digging on Hillary Clinton that they did on Trump, then Clinton would never have been the presidential nominee for the Democratic Party.”

headlines 2

True.  And actually, “If either paper had done the sort of digging on Hillary Clinton that they did on Trump,” she would be in jail, along with a lot of her friends.

“So, in a different scenario, if the Times and the Washington Post probe Clinton, alert the public to all of her ‘problems’ then the Democrats are forced to pick someone else as their candidate.  In that case, Trump might not have won.”

In reality, Mr. Crudele, anything “might” have happened.  It really annoys me these days when reporters say, “this might happen,” or that “could happen,” or this “may” happen.

Here’s some news for all of you journalism majors: ANYTHING “MIGHT,”  “COULD,” OR “MAY” HAPPEN!  THAT’S NOT NEWS!
